Bloomberg’s legislation proposal to reduce traffic in New York City has not been passed, despite his efforts to have it approved by Monday, reports Associated Press. The “congestion charge,” which was meant to improve the city’s air quality, needed state approval in Albany. The plan would charge drivers entering New York City $8 each day for cars and $21 each day for trucks. There were concerns that this law would be unfair to commuters who have to drive into the city and have no mass transit options available to them. If approved by Monday, it would have allowed the state to apply for hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding to help get the project started, according to the Associated Press.
